WHY LEATHER?

 As a slow fashion brand, we’re committed to delivering an effortless style that’s trans-seasonal and versatile. We believe things should be made to last longer and therefore we use premium Italian leather for our bags which stands the test of time and ages beautifully with time.

 

WHERE OUR LEATHER BAGS SOURCED FROM?

We source our luxury leather bags straight from Italy and we work with a century-old factory in Italy where the craft of handbag making has been passed on from generation to generation. They’re amazing in what they do and our supplier implements ethical working conditions.

Each hide has unique natural markings and characteristics which are maintained during the tanning process. The end result is a genuine and lush appearance, and best of all, it ages beautifully.

 

WHAT'S THE IMPACT OF LEATHER ON THE ENVIRONMENT?

We’re very focused on crafting our leather pieces from premium Italian Leather which provides you staple products for your wardrobe that last for years and therefore less wastage to landfill which means it will have less long term impact on the environment. The manufacturers we use have a strong commitment to working with leather which is the strictly by-product of the meat industry. No animals are harmed for the sole purpose of creating our products.

 

LEATHER PROTECTION FOR HANDBAGS

  • Store your bag in the dust bag provided in the cool, dry place.
  • Keep your bag out of direct sunlight for prolonged period of time as this causes leather to dry out and crack.
  • Avoid contact with grease, cosmetics, perfumes & other oil based products.
  • If storing for longer periods, fill your bags with stuffing to help keep it in shape & prevent wrinkles.
  • If you need to clean your bag, simply wipe it using lukewarm water. Never use household cleaners or products containing alcohol.
  • We recommend to apply a leather conditioner to replace the tanning oils that are depleted over time through wear, heat, and moisture. Natural waxes, like bees wax are often the best way to condition the hide.

Please remember, caring for a leather bag is quite similar to caring for your own skin as both benefit greatly from a good moisturizer, especially as we age.

 

LEATHER STORAGE

We recommend storing your leather bag in it's Mimi & Coco dust bag when not in use. Always keep your leather goods in a cool dry place free from moisture.

SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING

We use recycle boxes and home compostable shipping mailers which are eco-friendly and best for modern-day shipping solutions. They are reusable and these mailers are 100% home compostable, but also made from such materials that if they ended up in landfills, they would still break down with no waste.

We will continue to work on our mission to save the Earth. So stay tuned!

We place our orders from Italy in small batches to avoid any wastage and therefore, you would find the bags go on pre orders pretty quickly.
